Lightning, Bad Weather, Field Closures
   Severe Lightning/Thunderstorm Procedures (Thor Guard)
   The Thor Guard lightning prediction and warning system will sound an alarm signaling a red alert period: one -
   15 second long blast from the horn and a strobe light on the assembly begins intermittently flashing. If
   the conditions appear unsafe and a red alert alarm has not sounded, common sense should be your guide and
   activities should still cease despite the absence of a Thor Guard warning.

   All outdoor activities cease during red alert periods and appropriate shelter sought. Campus Recreation staff will
   clear participants from fields, playing areas, or the challenge ropes course. Participants may be evacuated to the
   Sport Outdoor Storage Facility, Student Recreation Center, Moby, Aggie Village, or personal vehicles.

   When the Thor Guard sensor detects that the danger has passed (a minimum of 10 minutes after the original
   alarm) it sends the all-clear signal; three separate - 5 second blasts from the horn, and the strobe light
   will stop flashing. After the all-clear signal is sounded, outdoor activities may resume.

    or risk of injury to individuals.
